A beachside lounge and grill, Suite 48's tantalizing food, exquisite cocktails, and sea views make it the perfect place in Paphos for al fresco fun.

When you find yourself standing before a finger post pointing in three directions, and the trio of options are ‘cocktail’, ‘dance’, and ‘beach’, you know you’ve made it to the right place, and in this case, it’s Paphos’ Suite 48. Located directly on the beach, Suite 48 is a true feast for the senses as dazzling views to sea are served up besides divine food and drink. The venue’s outside tables are bound to be the first thing you see upon arriving, and they sprawl across a lush lawn setting the laid back tone that Suite 48 has become famous for. While it is definitely a place to relax, Suite 48 worked feverishly to put together their menu, and we get to reap the benefits. Delicious fresh-grilled seafood and meats, international sandwiches, and a full range of fresh juices and smoothies are the stars of the food menu, served from lunch until well past sunset.  Speaking of the sunset, Suite 48 is renowned for having one of the best views in town, and they have created a cocktail card that manages to pair perfectly with it.  Freshly-shaken mojitos, daiquiris, and caipirinhas are just the tip of the crushed ice-berg, as the list includes tropically-tinged martinis, frozen drinks, and even beer cocktails (perfect for sunny daytime sessions). Our favorites though may just be their collection of Mediterranean-inspired tipples made with regional liqueur mastiha, like the Childhood (mastiha, vodka, bubble gum syrup, and fresh lemon juice) and the Suite 48 Cooler (mastiha, stoli vanilla, vanilla syrup, and homemade sour mix).
